Our block of flats had a toxic and extremely difficult history due to various factors. The Maunder Taylors were appointed Managers by the Tribunal in 2014. We previously had at least 4 managing agents who resigned within a year because they were not prepared for the toxic and divisive atmosphere and the in-fighting amongst leaseholders. The exterior was completely run down due to the fact that no external repairs had taken place for a number of years. They managed to resolve long-standing problems and handled contentious issues between groups of lessees with differing views on management matters in a professional manner. Since the Maunder Taylors’ appointment as Managers, the flats have been turned around and now are a desirable place to live and invest in. their team have played a big part in turning the estate from tired looking to a place which now looks like it is well looked after. I would highly recommend them especially for difficult and contentious issues.

I instructed Michael Maunder Taylor to provide a valuation for Inheritance Tax purposes. After an introduction call to understand the process, I was told a date for the visit and a date for the report. Both were completed to a very high standard. Very professional, punctual, and kept me informed throughout. I would highly recommend to all.

Just a very quick note to thank you for all of your efforts and diligence on this matter. I am a Building Surveyor and I completely appreciate how long these things can take and the processes that need to be followed. In fact, I have deliberately left you alone to allow this process to go through the various stages required, as I could see that you were managing this in the correct manner. I am obviously delighted that the Grant will be covering the works, so I am personally very appreciative of your efforts - thank you.

My family wholeheartedly recommends Maunder Taylor following a very good experience selling our home. After my father met Ben Ewen, he strongly recommended we use Maunder Taylor, despite my recommendation to shop around. After shopping around, I agreed Maunder Taylor was our best option and as soon as I met Ben myself, I understood my father’s insistence. Ben is very pleasant to deal with and handled our sale professionally and efficiently from day one, with the utmost integrity and kindness. He managed our price expectations well in an uncertain market and secured us good offers. Our sale was a little complicated, not least due to the global pandemic, but having Ben in our corner was extremely reassuring. We completed on time and found the fees to be excellent value. I was genuinely sorry my next transaction was on the other side of London! Thank you, Maunder Taylor.

Bruce Maunder Taylor came highly recommended by 2 separates sources. They both work in Residential and commercial properties. I needed Bruce to help me removing a very unprofessional property management in a block of flats. Bruce had to gather all the evidence and represent me in Court. Bruce did this in a very professional way and subsequently managed the building.

Brilliant company and cannot give them a high enough recommendation. Bruce Maunder Taylor is highly professional and extremely knowledgable. Bruce is a diplomate and looks for the most professional outcome without the need for any unwanted dispute. A real gentleman with a can do attitude.

We are directors of a freehold company in Marylebone and every now and then there are complex legal or personality issues that are beyond the normal scope of running a building. Our go to person is Bruce Maunder Taylor. Over the years Bruce has helped us with a fight against the previous head lessor, to enable us to get control of the building. More recently he won a case for us at the Tribunal against a long-term non-payer of the service charge. Bruce is excellent at taking a case all the way through the Tribunal, as well as offering practical, resolution advice that could avoid costly and time-consuming litigation altogether. Bruce is excellent at what he does and well respected by the Tribunal. We are very comforted by the fact that we know Bruce and if there are issues down the line, we can seek his guidance.

We were purchasing a freehold from the council who were extremely difficult - however we were very fortunate to have Ross from Maunder Taylor who was extremely helpful, approachable and extremely professional during an overall difficult purchase. Thank you Ross - an asset to the company!

I dealt with James on a recent flat purchase. I found him to be professional, responsive, very helpful, and patient. I would certainly recommend James and Maunder Taylor
